You probably wondered why it has been so quiet around here the last week. Trust me, it wasn’t quiet at all at the house. I was super busy and just didn’t have any time to blog. Between my day job, the kids, all the sports activities and then we decided to adopt another Fur baby, we had our hands full and blogging, well…. was way on the bottom of the list and I need a break every now and then, too.
Anyway, YES.. you have heard me right, we adopted a wonderful rescue this week. I have no idea why and how we decided we needed another fur baby, we already have Charlie Brown and Snoopy the beagle, so pretty much our house if full, but for some reason (and remember, there is always a reason for everything, you may not know the real reason till much later) I had the urge to adopt a rescue Lhasa Apso puppy. Now, check him out…. can you say no to this little fella that showered us with kisses and love from the second we met?
Isn’t he adorable? We got him from a Rescue in Orlando called “Paradise For Pet Rescue” and if you never had a rescue or have been worried about a rescue… let me tell you, we couldn’t be more happier with our decision.
Our new baby is all that we could hope for, healthy, happy, friendly and yes… housebroken. He fits right in with the rest of the gang as if he has been here from birth. Meet Woodstock… he is 2 years old and he fits in well with our 9 year old Lhasa Apso Charlie Brown and our 8 year old Beagle Snoopy. I can’t stop talking about him, the rescue and his amazing foster mom. We are blessed to have another wonderful pup in our home and he will have a forever home with us, that’s for sure.
1. Looking for Love ~ There are soooo many pooches out there that are looking for love from little Chihuahuas to big beautiful Labs and boxers, every shape, size and breed is out there looking for a loving home. Once you made up your mind of which breed works best for you…. look for a rescue, they have lots of love to give.
2. Amazing animals ~ Rescues are amazing animals, some may take a bit to warm up, but once you show them that they are loved and in their forever home, they will return the love as much as a puppy would. They are just wonderful pets waiting for their forever home.
3. Skip housetraining ~ Yup, most of the rescue pets are house trained; they are usually past the puppy stage, so no worries for you to take them out every hour to house train, they are done and ready to be a part of the family.
4. Why not? Why wouldn’t you consider a rescue? They are animals like any other, the word rescue shouldn’t scare you away that they are sick, disfigured or whatever else people think when you say “Rescue”. Most of the animals up for adoptions through rescues are pets that are saved from Kill shelters looking for a loving home. They lost their home most of the time of no fault of their own and have lots to give to the perfect family.
5. They are ready for a family ~ I did a lot of research in different rescues around my area and all animals that are up for adoptions are ready for a good home, vaccinated, checked by vets, heartworm free and already started on preventative medications like flea and tick as well as heartworm preventative. They are microchip and neutered (or spayed), issued a clean bill of healthy and ready to enjoy their new family. Can’t get any simpler then that.
So, the next time you are in the market for a new fur baby, think of a rescue place first. There are many, too many I think, around the country. I know there is one near you with amazing pups, kittens or even bunnies waiting for you to come in and show them you care. We are soo excited and proud that we were able to save our Fur baby from death row and are ready to give him a wonderful life, with us and his Peanut gallery gang…..
